By BRANDON LARRABEE The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE As Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis begins his nal de liberations on congressio nal districts drawn by law makers in 2012, the gaps in conversations among lawmakers and political consultants might be as important as whats in the record. Groups challenging the map have painted the words not committed to paper, and documents destroyed by the Legislature, as evi dence of improper activity. The state has countered that theres no proof those gaps contain any damning information. A coalition of votingrights groups led a law suit after the once-a-de cade redistricting process in 2012, saying the new map ran afoul of the anti-gerry mandering Fair Districts amendments that voters approved two years earlier. One of the key disputes in the challenge hinges on a series of maps drawn by Republican political op eratives, and the fact that some of those maps were submitted under someone elses name to a legislative website meant to gather public input. For nearly two weeks, plaintiffs presented evi dence that various Repub lican consultants discussed the redistricting process, drew draft maps and ap parently worked to submit maps through the public process, attorneys for the Legislature wrote in a l ing last week. But plain tiffs offered no evidence that those consultants in uenced the congressional map. In a nal brief led Tuesday, though, lawyers for the voting-rights groups essentially asked: Why else would the political consul tants spend time drawing those maps? Surely they would not have wasted their time on a complicated scheme of obtaining dozens of the Legislatures condential draft maps, drawing and revising countless maps of their own and smuggling their maps into the public process unless they were condent their input would receive special attention from the Legislature, the brief said. The two sides also have clashed over how Lewis should interpret the de struction of redistrictingrelated documents by law makers after the process was over. Legislators have said they were simply fol lowing the rules for retain ing those documents and getting rid of them when the rules allowed. Lewis already has ruled that he could hold it against the Legislature if incrimi nating documents were de stroyed. But lawyers for the state have argued that the maps opponents havent offered much in the way of evidence that the trashed papers would have helped their case. In the absence of evi dence, plaintiffs ask the court to assume that docu ments discarded in the regular course of legisla tive business contained in criminating information, the states nal brief said. The facts do not support an inference that commu nications were discarded in bad faith to conceal im proper intent. That was the idea in the rst place, the voting-rights groups said in Tuesdays ling: Make sure legisla tors could get rid of any re cords that might prove that the map unconstitutionally favors incumbents or po litical parties, then claim no one can establish that any of the records were important. In any case, it is amaz ing that legislative de fendants would have the temerity to fault plaintiffs for failing to identify with sufcient specicity the very documents legisla tive defendants unilaterally destroyed, the lawyers argued. In a sense, attorneys ghting the map say Lewis should use common sense when considering the meetings between political consultants and legislative staff in late 2010 and early 2011; the emphasis the at torneys say lawmakers put on the districts covertly submitted by consultants; and the notion that the nal maps addressed some of the consultants concerns. The result of these ef forts was a highly partisan 2012 congressional plan and an initial Senate map that was thrown out by the Flor ida Supreme Court, they argued. Not even the most trusting soul could chalk all that up to coincidence. But that, attorneys for the state argue, doesnt prove the groups case. Here, plaintiffs case is founded on a pyramid of inferences, a series of men tal gymnastics that more often than not defy reason and logic and (are) unsup ported by the evidence, they wrote. Lewis is expected to is sue a ruling sometime this summer. Whats missing matters in redistricting trial CARO L K EN T | The News Potential architects for the construction of the new courthouse donned gloves and masks to take a tour of the old courthouse in hopes of getting an idea of the existing buildings history and layout. COURTHOUSE from page A1 dressed, such as demolition of the old jail and the cleaning and remediation of old gas tanks. Those issues shouldnt be too difcult, and we are already working with the West Florida Planning Council to obtain grant money (for the removal of the gas tanks) and with the Chipley Revitalization Agen cy to apply for a grant for the demolition of the courthouse and/or old jail, advised the attorney. Both Goodman and Interim Clerk of Court Harold Bazzel gave candidates a piece of advice regarding what many con sider to be one of the new designs most desired aspects. Anything of historical value you can implement stylistically, or by salvaging parts of the old courthouse and reusing them in a neat way, would be appreciated by both the board and the citizens, said Goodman. Nobody likes change, but that building isnt old; its sick, Bazzel said. We want to incorporate the old in with the new, and I think we can do that beautifully.

The sanctuary of Northside Baptist Church on Airport Road can hold about 280 people. Many more than that attended the funeral for 33-year-old Stephen Justin Ayers. A telecast was aired in the churchs fellowship hall next door, which also was lled to capacity. Ayers was a musician and instructor at A Beat Better Music downtown, and Saturdays service had a musical theme. Fellow musicians opened the service with a rendition of Wild Horses by the Rolling Stones, and musical interludes lled the lulls between speakers. This week this family has grieved. In fact, the entire community has grieved, the Rev. Luther Stanford said. In our hurt, this community has come together and it is a testimony to the bright soul Justin was. Ayers was killed instantly Tuesday night when a stray bullet entered his home at 2502 Michigan Court and struck him in the back of the head. His family had gathered there to celebrate the homecoming of his 3-dayold baby, who was born on Fathers Day. A donation website titled Go Without To Help Out: the Ayers Family has been set up at gofundme. com/agla8k to help Ayers wife Jessica and newborn son Jaxton. More than 450 people had donated more than $20,000 as of Saturday, two days after the website was created. Ayers neighbor, Charles Edward Shisler, 62, of 3708 W. 25th St., has been charged with manslaughter and possession of a rearm by a felon. Shisler told Bay County sheriffs investigators that a 9mm pistol accidentally discharged when he picked it up inside his house. The bullet went through his window and dense woods before it shattered the rear sliding glass of the Ayers home 200 feet away and hit Ayers in the back of the head, according to reports. A blood sample taken about four hours later revealed Shislers bloodalcohol content was 0.079, according to reports. Shisler has been in the county jail since the shooting. Where he acquired the pistol is still under investigation. Overflow crowd attends Stephen Ayers funeral Photos by HEATHER LEIPHART | The News Herald The Rev.

OPINI O N www.chipleypaper.com Wednesday,June 25, 2014 A Page 4 Section Get to know your neighbor at the Watermelon Fest I moved away from my native Washington County in 2005, and just returned home for good in February. In all those years, I never made the effort to travel back for the occasion of the Panhandle Watermelon Festival. Shame on me. Not coming out to experience something that is at the very heart of what makes our community truly unique is like owning a ne collection of literary classics and never peeking inside their pages to see what wonders they hold. While Im sure past festivals suffered no loss at my absence, I can clearly see what an experience Ive been missing. What Ive been missing, as it turns out, is plenty. Already, Ive noticed increased activity in downtown Chipley in anticipation of this weekends festivities. Seeing downtown lined with cars and bustling with activity makes me think about what potential there is in this small Florida town. Its a beautiful sight. If its been a while since youve experienced the festival, I encourage you to come out, too, as the event has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception 58 years ago. Vendors will have many goods to offer, so Ive challenged myself to wander around and try to visit each booth. Events and activities offered over these two days arent lacking in variety, either: From the free music by big name artists like John Anderson, Ashton Shepherd and Jeff Bates, to the 5K Hot Trot, watermelon auction, pancake breakfast and more; rest assured, there will truly be something for everyone. But I think the festivals best offering is what comes completely free. A chance to mix and mingle in a positive environment with everyone from your local convenience store clerk to your tax collector is an opportunity not often afforded us. Sometimes, we get caught up in peoples perceived roles and dont see individuals for who they are. Like a book used to build a library, each person in our community adds his or her own story to our life. Some are dramatic, some sad and some are downright comedic. All are classics.

It should be noted that this is the third year in a row Gulf Coast has declined to raise tuition even as other institutions across the nation raised theirs a whopping 16 percent on average over the past three years, according to The College Board, a non-prot college readiness organization. However, next year almost certainly will be different as ofcials examine their enrollment numbers versus the cost of salaries, health insurance for its employees and a host of other expenses that come with running the facility. Currently, a Florida resident taking bachelor level course work at Gulf Coast pays $117.59 per credit hour, according to GCSCs website. GCSC President Jim Kerley told the colleges Board of Trustees during a recent meeting that it could raise its rate by 4 percent and still have the lowest tuition in the state. While thats excellent news, the college is faced with a worrying trend regarding enrollment numbers which have dropped steadily since a peak in 2010. Were sure college ofcials are working on solutions for this negative data point and one of them likely will be the construction of the new Science Technology Engineering and Math building on campus. GCSC got $5 million in this years state budget to help build a cuttingedge facility. Were sure a new building with top programs geared toward high-paying jobs that students nd rewarding will be a key part of the colleges strategy. We hope Tallahassee continues to listen. Another issue facing the college is salaries and insurance. This year employees received a 2 percent raise and the college absorbed a 10 percent increase in the cost of health insurance. Reached by phone on Friday, Kerley added that new GCSC professors make approximately $38,000 and that the college should look at improving salaries even more in the near future. That probably cant happen without a tuition increase and ofcials will be forced to weigh the nances of their students versus the needs of their employees. Regardless of the outcome of that debate, this community has a vested interest in the success of Gulf Coast State College. A well-trained work force can attract new employers to the area and that means more and hopefully higher-paying jobs for a community that needs them. Its often a chicken and egg problem; employers wont come to town because we dont have the desired workforce and residents see little value in getting skills for jobs they wont get without leaving town and starting over in a new place. While the education students get at GCSC is, comparatively, low cost, the value of a bachelors degree remains high. In 2012, a family that was headed by a four-year graduate had a median income of $101,909 twice the median income for families that only include high school graduates, according to The College Board. We certainly hope Gulf Coast can hold out another year or two before raising tuition but the increase, when it comes, seems understandable. Dear Editor, As a Florida resident, I am disturbed by the appointment of Andrew Hertz as the chair of Visit Florida, our state-funded tourism marketing agency. Hertz is the president and general manager of the Miami Seaquarium, which holds the distinct dishonor of keeping an orca in the smallest orca tank in North America, a tank so tiny that it is illegal under the Animal Welfare Act. Seaquariums lone orca, Lolita, was cruelly captured from her family pod as a baby. The heartbreaking footage was shown in the documentary Blacksh. She had been held captive and forced to perform confusing tricks for food for more than 40 years. And since Lolitas tankmate died 34 years ago, after ramming his head into the side of the tank, she has had no opportunity to interact with members of her own species. That is excruciating for this social, intelligent animal. I am deeply concerned that Hertzs vested interest in promoting cruel marine mammal captivity will affect his decisions at Visit Florida. There is so much to love about Florida, and so many ways to see our majestic wildlife in their natural habitats. I enjoy sharing our states beauty and fun attractions with visitors and Ive happily shared many posts using Visit Floridas slogan, #LoveFL. But I dont love cruelty to animals and I wont support any organization that does. Sincerely, Michelle Kretzer Dunedin Visit Florida appointment sends wrong message Knowledge seeker or busybody, however you wish to see it, I always seem to need to know. Know anything and everything, although I try to limit it to useful information. Just like Sherlock Holmes. Information like when to dispose of a loofa, toothbrush or nail clipper. And thats where the Internet comes in handy (and more often than not my handheld cellular telephone device). On a whim, I can ask all sorts of questions and nd the information on the Internet. Before, Id write them all down and spend hours in a library, though these types of questions are rarely ever publicized. It was in college that I really became acquainted with the phrase Google it. Shows you how far behind I was. I had Internet access for over a decade and still didnt utilize the Internet until I was in my third year of college. Thats because I always had the library, my second home lled with my closest friends, Hemmingway, Poe, King and so many others. Dont laugh, but in my journalism classes there was an entire half a semester on just Internet research alone. I know this is elementary to most but I hope that some of this information might come in handy because it can be frustrating not being able to nd the information youre looking for on the rst try. Two main points were: Use a variety of words and always, always, always check sources. The search engine known as Google, along with its cousins Bing, etc., runs off of key words or phrases. If youre looking for something use the main topic rst followed by any information that might help narrow it down. If you are searching for information on a person you can type in his name, followed by the place he is located and even a date if it is a recent article. A thesaurus comes in handy when changing up topics that can be frustrating to nd. Next is sources. It can be scary to go into unknown water when searching for information without running the risk of catching a virus or lling your mailbox with spam. When in college the biggest taboo was to use any information from Wikipedia, or as my teacher called it, Wickedpedia. It has become much better since then but at the time the website was rarely monitored for correctness and anyone could alter and change the information if they wanted to. Im not saying it is now a reliable source by any means. I still see it as questionable at best. University websites, in my opinion, are by far the best. They usually provide the latest in research ranging in a large variety of topics. Sometimes, though, it just comes down to the individual using his best judgment because it is still possible that even though it is on the Internet it can still be wrong. It is best to look at it as taking advice from a large number of different people, because in the end, the Internet is run by people. Oh, and if you were interested in the answers to the above examples, it is best to dispose of loofas every three or four weeks and toothbrushes every three months. As for nail clippers, they need replacing when the original is lost because the majority are lost before dulling. Thank you again for sitting with me for another spell. See you next week.

The colorful festival posters and yers have been seen in and around Chipley for the past two weeks. A full program of events centering around the watermelon, regarded for many years as the cash crop for area farmers, continues to dominate the theme for entertaining the thousands who will grace Washington County with a visit for the gigantic celebration. Regular readers know that the writer was honored to chair this historic festival during thirty long years of service, some of which was a struggle to keep the event moving forward. This is the eighth year that Judge Colby Peel has carried forth the annual, well-established festival as its chairman. Continued growth each year has been observed in all aspects of the mammoth undertaking during his leadership. One prime example was last years big watermelon auction when one lowly watermelon brought the unheard price of $10,000! The purchaser then donated it back for a further sale. One the second bidding, $2,000.00 was paid for the same melon. Throughout the eight years in retirement as chairman of the watermelon festival, Judge Peel has invited and welcomed my services in each annual event. I have jokingly stated that I retired from promotions to procurement in my involvement in the festival. Procurement meaning that your former chairman has taken on the responsibility of assuring that an adequate supply of delicious and attractive melons are on the oor of the auditorium awaiting the talents of Auctioneer, David Corbin, in selling the product. The cooperation of the growers in entering their big melons in the contest, and the willingness of prospective buyers to pay top dollars in the enjoyable auction, enters into the equation. Even with fewer growers producing melons than in years of the past, indication are that ample melons will be available for slicing and serving to our visitors, which is a trademark of the local event. In addition, ofcials at the Agriculture Center, the venue for the event, state that they believe potential prize melons will be forthcoming to supply the demand for another successful auction this year. Historically, the present day watermelon festival had its origin toward the end of the watermelon season in 1956. Ross Deal, who served as a watermelon broker, came up with the idea of hosting a cookout for both watermelon growers and watermelon buyers from far and near, to celebrate what all involved labeled as a highly successful year. The combination cookout, with entertainment, was held at the Ross Deal shipping shed in Chipley. It is recalled that this activity continued on a yearly basis for several seasons. In 1964, under the leadership of County Agriculture Extension Agent, J. E. (Red) Davis, the Panhandle Produce Festival was born, involving both Washington and Holmes County. This was supported by the Kiwanis Clubs of both Chipley and Bonifay, with annual celebrations rotated between the two counties for a short while. Later, by mutual consent, the Produce Festival was to continue in Chipley and the Bonifay Kiwanis Club began an All Night Gospel Sing. It is reliably acknowledged that 1967 and 1968 went by without a festival in Chipley due to some misfortunes and health problems among those who normally coordinated it. During that time, the Chipley Kiwanis Club got out of the watermelon festival promotions. In 1969, a group of people got together and formally organized the Panhandle Watermelon Festival. Some of the founding fathers included J. E. (Red) Davis, Ross Deal, Walker Hughen, Farrell Nelson, Henry Hargove, V. J. (Vivian) Collins, Andy Grifn and A. F. Townsend. An annual watermelon festival was given new life. In addition to the usual parade and slicing of watermelon for visitors, the big watermelon contests had begun. Prizes at that time were guano donated by area businesses dealing in farm products. Talent contests, and a beauty pageant to select Miss Watermelon for the festival was added to the list of entertainment. In 1975, The Panhandle Watermelon Festival, Inc. was ofcially chartered as a non-prot corporation by the Secretary of State under existing laws and guidelines. The event was held in various downtown locations as additional attractions were continuing to be added to the festival. When the Washington County Agricultural Center was renovated in 1982 to include an air-conditioned auditorium, the annual watermelon festival began to grow in leaps and bounds. A Friday Fun Night was added to include country, gospel and bluegrass music from local talent with Dalton Carter heading up the activities. Fun Games to include watermelon rolling, seed spitting and watermelon eating was initiated, under the leadership of Lamar Townsend One of my last acts as chairman was to write an extensive history of the Panhandle Watermelon Festival for the Heritage of Washington County Book in 2006, then being assimilated. That book is still available. Contact me for your copy. The closing paragraph for the above article states: Hopefully this event, which still promotes the production of watermelons, will continue to attract thousands of visitors, boost our economy and provide wholesome family entertainment in our town for years to come. I am happy to report that I see the mission of the festival as still on track as the 2014 event is upon us. See you all next week.

Special to The News It has been said time and time again the presence of animals helps alleviate stress and benefit your overall mood. This also can be true in the workplace. As demonstrated by multiple studies, having a pet in the workplace not only lowers stress levels and encourages a productive work environment, but also helps to boost morale. In honor of Take Your Dog to Work Day, which was Friday, June 20, here are some basic guidelines to keep this a fun and safe day at the office. There is a huge body of evidence that shows having pets around is a natural relaxant, said Dr. Mark Stickney, Clinical Associate Professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. There is definitely a benefit to having a less stressful work environment. However, the increased productivity and decreased stress levels is entirely dependent on the obedience and behavior of your dog. An untrained dog that will wreak havoc on the office is not a suitable choice for this highly anticipated day. First of all, make sure you know what your office policy is on bringing your pet to work, Stickney said. With that being said, the quickest way to end Take Your Dog to Work Day is to bring in a dog that cant behave itself and will be a nuisance all day long. If you do have an obedient, well-behaved dog that wont disrupt your work day, there are still some basic guidelines to follow before letting him tag along. For instance, prior to bringing Fido with you to work, it is vital that you doggy proof your office and properly notify your fellow coworkers of his visit. Even if Take Your Dog to Work Day is celebrated at your workplace, it is still a good idea to let your immediate supervisor know that you will be bringing your pet that day, Stickney said. If you have an office, you will want to leave a note on your door explaining that there is a dog inside to avoid any unpleasantly surprised visitors or escapes through the open door. Additionally, make sure Fido has nonsqueaky chew toys to occupy him, plenty of food and water, a leash and ways to dispose of any accidents he leaves in the office. If you have a puppy or avid chewer, you will also need to make sure that all computer wires and other various cords are someplace where your dog cant get to them, Stickney said. You wouldnt want your pet to be the reason for a system-wide shut down. Ensuring that they are up to date on their vaccinations and are completely flea-free is a must. It also is recommended that you bring a copy of the paperwork proving this to work with you that day, should any concern arise. Often times, dogs that are well behaved at home will become nervous when placed in an unfamiliar environment, Stickney said. It is imperative that they are up to date on their rabies vaccines in the case that they bite someone out of fear. Just keep in mind that while you may love your dogs slobbery kisses and welcoming leaps onto your lap, a fellow co-worker may not be as big of a fan. Be mindful of others space and privacy on this day, and always make sure Fido is on a leash to prevent any complaints or accidents. As long as it is in line with your companys policy, your dog is well trained and properly socialized, and you follow some of these basic guidelines, Take Your Dog to Work Day can be a fun experience for all involved.

Just as soon as a politician voices a position on an issue, he spins it around and it sounds like he has taken an opposite view. All that spinning has me in a whirl. It seems to me that when God ran out of brains and intellectual capacitors, He turned to an angel and said, I know what I will do. Ill make me a politician. He gathered up all the leftover dirt He could nd and threw together what we now know as a politician. I do not know if this was a joke on Gods part or if He is just trying to test us to see how much pain we can endure. The only consolation I have, and I have read my Bible over 100 times, there is no mention of politicians in heaven. Maybe that is one of the things that make heaven, heaven. I know I do not understand much that goes on in the political arena, but one of the things I have been hearing has to do with what they call, The Haves and the Have Nots. It must be important because now there is a TV series with this name. Do not dare ask me if I have watched it because I will have to tell you the truth. I Have Not. There are many things that I do not have and I am quite happy that I do not have them. I do not have an incurable disease. I do not have a debt so far above my head that I am going into bankruptcy. I do not have a table full of bills that I cannot pay. I am happy that I do not have any of these things. It could be the benet of getting old. I guess I am getting old, at least I am getting older and my plan is to get as old as I possibly can. But as a part of the older generation, I do not really need anything that I do not have. I suppose it would be nice to have a new truck, but there is nothing wrong with my old truck. It still gets me where I want to go, the air conditioner still works and the radio still plays my kind of music. Why would I need a new truck? I choose to focus not on what I Have Not but on what I really do Have. I have a wonderful wife, but do not tell her I said so, it might get me into some kind of a situation. This year we will have been married some 43 years and why she has put up with the likes of me all this time I will never know. Actually, the fact that she has put up with me all these years brings into question her sanity. I have some wonderful children and grandchildren. It would be nice to live long enough to see my greatgrandchildren, but I am not pushing that issue. I am rejoicing in what I have. The best thing that I have, the thing I treasure the most, is my relationship with God. I can identify with what David said, The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want (Psalm 23:1). What David is really saying here is that when the Lord is my Shepherd, then the reality is simply, I shall not want. The other side of the picture is true as well. If I nd myself constantly in want, maybe the Lord is not my Shepherd. DR. JAMES L. SNYDER Out to Pastor The Haves, the Have Nots and the Whatnots
